Rentmens' new interviews of escorts

Recommended Posts

I took the time to answer 28 of the questions and I just actually read my own interview for the first time. I think this feature is really good. It really gives guys a chance to know us before they hire us. Along with the videos I still believe Rentmen to be the SUPERIOR male escort website. If you havent checked out my new video, "IT's a gusher," then I do reccomend it. I really wish men4rentnow and rentboy would adopt some of these features. Sadly , still, only a SMALL percentage of my biz comes from Rentmen.com. http://www.rentmen.com/mikeyusatop

I can't figure why rentmen.com isn't catching fire. It's better than the competitors. For awhile in Atlanta, it had upwards of 40 escorts. It's down in the 20s again.

I don't understand it either. The guys I enjoy are either exclusively RM or use RM plus other source(s).

 

Just checked Boston----49 RB/ 44 M4R/ and 16 RM

 

Unbelievable! Is it rates charged?

The owner who used to post here always touted how it wouldn't keep up expired ads as M4RN does, but I find expired ads on the site quite frequently. There aren't as many as on M4RN, but there aren't as many total escort ads on the site either. In fact a few months ago, one of the guys that was the escort of the week had an expired ad. I informed them-major faux pas. They then reactivated the ad:p

Absolutely agree with you Decatur. I know Mike from Rentmen and he's very client-centric, something those behind Rentboy are not. Rentmen is a dream to navigate, and clients can create profiles by which escorts can search -- really helps to connect the right escort with the right client as far as sexual compatibility goes. That users can post videos is a great feature as well. However, I am not a fan of the new interview feature. In today's digital, information-overload world, reading online has little appeal -- something I am mindful of in my own business. Videos do best in an image-soundbite driven media format like the Web. The new Q & A interviews are a spin-off of Mike's escort-video interviews, which have been offered on the site since it launched. Unfortunately, not every escort can get into NYC, nor can Rentmen personnel visit every escort, in order to film the interview. I think the intentions behind the new interviews are solid, but again, I confess I am now one of the countless Internet-induced, attention-deficit-browsers, and won't even bother with an escort ad that is text-heavy. Still, Rentmen is by far the best site as far as navigation, features, interactivity, customer service, etc. Like you, I am mystified it has not caught on in a bigger way. Mike did mention that the site has surpassed men4rentnow as far as traffic-related statistics, etc. So maybe more time is needed for the site to surpass Rentboy as the site of choice. Rentboy certainly pulls in the ads, but based on my interaction with them via e-mail, concerning various matters like technical failures, the site's staff doesn't seem to give a sh*t about the client experience. But then again, for now at least, Rentboy is a necessary evil, so to speak.

I prefer much more RENTMEN over RENTBOY and M4RN for seeking sufficient information about an escort. The photos are better generally, the description is more complete, and special features such as videos and now the interviews give an escort a great chance to put himself out there for clients.

 

Mike the webmaster is very responsive to both clients and escorts, interested in keeping both sides engaged and on top - or on bottom ;-)) . I have been a devotee of this site since it first appeared and while they might not have the wide selections of the other two, I find them much more reliable and user friendly. I also like the way you can tell more readily who is "on line" or who is "looking to hire" or "ready to be hired" etc... (Yeah yeah, I know about the War Board on Rentboy but find it a mess to be honest). The BEST feature of Rentmen is that escorts can see who is looking into them and can reach out - so for shy clients, an added extra.

I've sung the praises of Rentmen in other threads, and will continue here. I think it's the best escort website out there. Like DG, I don't know why it isn't more popular with advertising escorts, unless there is a perception that it isn't well known enough to the hiring guys.? I don't know.

as the OP a point of clarification in my original post. When I travel on tour in LARGER markets the response from rentmen is good. It is in the SMALLER markets such as new orleans or my home area of sw Florida where the potential clients simply DONT KNOW the site exists. I have always stressed smaller underserved markets. In those areas for whatever reason (and i cannot explain it) men4rentnow is kick ass successful. It totally baffles me as to why.

Two weeks ago I rejoined RentMen after having an unsuccessful try 6 or so years ago. And in those two weeks I have not received one request for information or an appointment from that site, and yes I've checked my spam folder. RentMen just does not get the traffic the others do. It might not be logical, but that's the case.

Logical reasoning from Rod, for sure. I didn't know that Rentmen was in existence 6 years ago.. but then again, the older I get the faster time goes! LOL

getting alot of messages from guys who read the interview and were impressed. Most of them admit they are way too BROKE to hire me but it is flattering nonetheless that they took time to read it and contact me. I got to thinking though: since my overnight and travel rate is HALF of what most leading guys charge then how are the top guys getting ANY clients these days? I spoke yesterday to two faceless and nameless leading escorts who told me that while they boast publicly about being busy neither one has had a client in 7 full days........ me thinks Mr. Obamas' recovery is a god damned lie and an illusion.... just calling em as I see them from the front lines.

I always wanted to ask: Do you think the escort business is better when a republican or a democrat is in office? I don't really get involved in politics (but it's hard not to in this day and age)...but I started out in 2008 before the election. Things were effortless that year, but then got worse toward the end. But it got better for awhile a few months after the election...but up until this re-election seems like everything has gone to hell in a handbasket industry-wise. It makes sense that the majority 15% are likely to be republican.

 

And talk about broke, just look at craigslists. I'll be the 1st to admit that once in awhile I'll go and post links to my ads and get some luck. But today, I go and see 5 different or so ads within the last couple hours saying:

 

just looking to SUCK a (uncut black) DICK - m4m

 

Bi white visitor looking for hung, Masc bbc that wants sucked - m4m

 

ALL BLACK BBC CUM WELCOME - m4m

 

gl gwm sucking black dick at the arcade - m4m

 

But the thing is, they don't want to pay for it. I responded but the responses I received said I was hot, but they don't pay for it. They want to get something for nothing. And that's an issue because that's a segment that I could be serving, but I can't. It's virtually non-existent around here because they expect to get it without having to give up anything for it. Bunch of bullcrap. Free prostitution is what I call it. They want you to slut yourself out and not give shit for it. Meanwhile all my escort ads are collecting dust. 2014, off to Spain...

Joey,

You do understand that lot of gay men in their 40/50/60's have sex without paying for it....don't you?? Sure the vehicle for making contacts has moved to social media in the last 5-7 years, but this has gone on forever. Is your next suggestion going to be that CL, GRINDR, and the like be shut down so that people are left with no other option but to call you as a very last resort?

So you're responding to ads on Craigslist and just assuming people will pay you? If they come to you off an ad then that's different. However, that comes off as just insulting.

You're twisting my words around, and thus missing the point. I know people have been having free sex since gay was created. I did it for years and STILL do it (although not quite 40 yet lol)

 

I was making a response to Mikey's comment. And the point I was making was, it's not so much that there's not a desire or demand going on. But rather, people are expecting to get something for nothing. Hell, these people aren't looking for Black boyfriends. They just want to live the Kim Kardashian fantasy for a few minutes...yet they expect it to come for nothing. I understand it's a different market...hell, probably not EVEN a market. But, it COULD be a market is what I'm saying. Why is it not? Because of the system. The gay system. The American system. The gay system is you can get for free, and the American system is "why pay for it, when you can get it for free?" I hear my friends say that and I just want to pimp slap them. Cheap, cheap, cheap, bargain, bargain, bargain, and save, save, save. That's the era we are in now. There's no chastity in getting it for free over paying for it LOL.

 

It's hurting the business. Don't get feisty with me, I'm just telling it how it is.

 

So you're responding to ads on Craigslist and just assuming people will pay you? If they come to you off an ad then that's different. However, that comes off as just insulting.

 

This was not meant to be an argument. I did it as AN EXPERIMENT. (Of course, if they did pay, great). I didn't tell them anything about them paying me first of all. I gave them my stats, sent a couple pics, and asked if they would be interested in the same thing, but from a hired entertainer. Hell, if you're asking a guy to come to your hotel and drop his pants, or you saying you want to just suck someone off...you're soliciting prosititutes. I'm from Miami, people do that are looking to pay for it. I guess Denver is different....

 

Nothing insulting about that. They asked for Black uncut dick, I have black uncut dick. But their ad didn't say 'free only'. They didn't seem offended, so don't try and make them feel offended. I mean, if they really want something so bad, they'll be willing to do what they need to do. But, I would almost imagine most of them don't want it that bad...but rather just fantasising about it, just testing the waters so to speak. I bet even if I did offer it for free, they'd probably be a bit wayward about meeting up. I met one guy last week off CL, was staying at the Hyatt Grand here in town. Pretty good looking. He seemed like he was all for it, but then backed out midway citing he was still new to gay sex. Luckily, I was still paid. I'd of been ticked if I went for free.

 

I meet more serious guys willing to pay...even on free sites...than serious guys who don't want to pay. Ponder that.
